How to find West Winds

We are in a quiet location in Buckden, off the main road (B6265/B6160 from Skipton to Aysgarth), tucked away up the lane beside the Buck Inn.

Buses run to Buckden from Skipton railway and bus stations via Grassington daily (not Sundays or Bank Holidays) (No. 72, Pride of the Dales) or from Ilkley railway station (No. 74, Pride of the Dales). Services are also run between Grassington and Buckden by the Upper Wharfedale Venturer community bus company.

On Sundays and Bank Holidays, you can often catch the DalesBus 872 or 874 from Skipton, Ilkley, Bolton Abbey or Grassington direct to Buckden.

In summer there are sometimes buses connecting with the Settle-Carlisle Railway at Ribblehead Station that take you to Buckden via Hawes and Aysgarth.

We aim to offer special help to those using public transport, walking or cycling, so if you would like further travel information or walking and cycling routes, please call us.

Car parking is available in the large car park at the northern end of the village. You’ll see our sign at the entrance to the car park. To find West Winds, head for the Buck Inn and walk up the lane beside it. You’ll soon see the West Winds sign in the corner of our garden. We’ll have the kettle on!
